As of late, I can't open my mailbox without seeing an obnoxious ad of the Fool's latest trading idea, "Big Short". The front page of the Fool is alive with headlines touting their shorting advise, which then overflow into the blogs, comments, and archives. The "groundbreaking news" that the average stock goes down and that professionals from financial institutions such as Goldman Sachs and Morgan Stanley were not aware of this fact is so artfully presented that you may even wish it were true.
If you turn off your critical filter for a minute, you may get the impression that the Fool has just discovered a quick and easy path to riches.
But my advise is to keep the filter on.
It's NOT an easy way to riches.
